A Big Thank you and soon a giveaway

Thank you ladies and gentleman for your comments. I appreciate your support! You all rock!

To tell you the truth, I was kind of blind sighted the other day. I usually check my emails first thing in the morning. When I pulled them up, there was a very mean spirited email that obviously was disturbing. What is sad is the fact that the person spent time finding the email address and firing off a nasty email. How sad.
Not a good way to start the day for either one of us. My day was going to be a long one and certainly not a fun filled day. That is when I decided to post very quickly before heading out. I think this picture that was taken in Paris shows that you can be very different but still get along just fine.

I have been the lucky recipient of the "I love your blog" award from Cielo. If you have not visited her blog, you are in for a treat. It is beautiful visually and spiritually. She was one of my first blogging friends and a true sweetheart. Her writing is incredible! Thank you my friend.

has tagged me with sharing 6 quirks. I just love her blog. Her spirit is lovely, her blog is inspiring and she is a lot of fun! Thank you my friend.

Here goes...... 1. I always state what is on my mind (tactfully I hope, most of the time).

2. I am not a "car girl" but I love the BBC show "Top Gear" which is a car show.

3. I sing loudly along with the radio in my car. I'm sure I may scare people!

4. As a child, I had to keep my food separated on my plate.

5. I start the day by being thankful for another day on earth.

6. I give it my best shot to be positive every day.

Instead of passing this on to a certain number of people, I am passing this on to any one that would like to play along. I guess #7 is that I don't always play by the rules-hehe!

I am getting close to my 100th post. Unbelievable! I never thought I would have anything to talk about. Stay tuned for a French themed giveaway.

God bless all of you that have suffered damage in the storm. The pictures are just heartbreaking. You have a whole community praying for you.

I am slowly making my way around to visit blogs. This has been a crazy week and another one is coming up.

Have a beautiful Sunday.

Sorry you got a nasty email. Love the cute photo of the cat and dog in the little doll bed. So cute, as are you, my friend.

Just read your previous post. How nasty some people are, it is up to you whether you ask for prayer, or not, no one else's business. I suppose all we Christians will soon be targeted?

Don't let the words of some foolish people upset you. There are all kinds of crazy people in the world.

I for one will always pray for those who ask and I love when people pray for me.

So if anyone gets offended by what you write on YOUR blog they can just stop coming and reading and go elsewhere.

Sorry you got upset.

I'm so sorry Barb,that someone who finds prayer or giving of ones self offensive.Please don't let nasty people like that make you sad.Thats what they want.They are so empty or souless, that they can only feel power when they think they can grandstand you.Bite back by laughing at them.Here's a lite example: If they call you a gorilla,Say,Yea,I can ape with the best of them, while looking them dead in the eye with a slight grin. Trust me, when i say it will stop them cold. PS. Thanks for stoping by to see about me.XOXO Marie Antionette

I still like to seperate my food LOL The picture you posted is adorable! I am so glad I found your blog. I think you are an amazing person.

Thanks for stopping in at my blog for a visit.

I was reading your post, and it saddened me that someone would be offended by a prayer request. I personally find it a comfort to know people are praying for me.

Follow your heart - it is going in the right direction.

Hugs, Bebe :)

Time flies, doesn't it? I know I started my blog, and had no idea where I was really going with it. I had a concept in mind, but a budding one. I have found blogging to be immensely therapeutic. And have made many friends who I cherish. Keep on keepin' on, girl!

Rebecca Ramsey said...

Hey Barb,
So sorry that happened! Your blog is your blog, and you should feel free to write whatever you want. I've heard of others writing similar comments on other blogs and I just don't get it. If someone is offended, why don't they just stop reading? People can be so strange.

I love your blog and am glad to see prayer requests. If someone needs prayer, I'm happy to join in!

Hugs to you!

I can't find your email so I'm "chatting" with you through this way - posting to blog. My email is on my profile page BTW.......

Yep, you're right!! Wrinkles do give them US!!! LOL

I enjoyed reading about your quirks! So sorry to hear that some people have nothing better to do with their time then to send ugly emails. This is your wonderful place to share positive things with the blog world. Don't let people like that bother you.

Hi Barb. Your bottles are really lovely, what a sweet way to use ephemera:-). I just read your seven things and had to tell you that Top Gear is Mr Fufu's favorite TV show!! Don't let the mean spirited people out there get to you.....xo
